Puttin’ on the Dog is a major fundraiser for Adopt-A-Dog, so waking up Sunday morning to discover rain sent a shiver. But the sun came out and it was nice and warm. Turnout was great and there is even better news this year.
Kennel Manger Kristen Alouisa said that there were applications received for adoptions for over half the Adopt-A-dog dogs, which is great news. Last year only one dog got adopted as a result of the event, and the year before none were placed.
Unfortunately, Kara did not snag her dream home, but no one has given up. She is really a nice girl and just needs to be an only-dog. Please take a second look at Kara and maybe arrange to meet her. She is a love!
Cammie is being fostered for OPIN. She has benefited tremendously from her foster arrangement and is super sweet. Her Petfinder page has a thorough description of her.
Ari Jacobson adopted Rex, a pit bull puppy who was being fostered by Tina Aronson in Greenwich. You may remember Rex, who we featured last week on Greenwich Free Press. After a couple weeks at Tina’s spent playing with her Pug “Max” and Pit Bull “Delilah,” and a Saturday in Bruce Park at the Greenwich Kennel Club’s dog show, Rex made his way into Ari’s heart. What’s even greater than a forever home is that Ari is part of the Pet Pantry leadership team and Rex will no doubt have access to some great food and awesome toys.
